Asian Male Resentment in the Age of White Male Resentment

By Wesley Yang.

 

"The Asian man in America bears a peculiar burden of nonrecognition, of invisibility."

 

"More than a decade ago, an editor at the literary journal n+1 asked if I wanted to write about the largest mass murder in American history, which had occurred a few days previously at a college in Virginia. I resented the implication of his request. The implication was that there was something about that episode that would be particularly salient to me. I resented the implication because it was true."
